Over-the-Top Luxuries in Celebrity Mansions

Mansions
Written by Shiyamala

The saying goes, “a home is a reflection of its owner.” With all of Hollywood’s prominent personalities, it should be no surprise that celebrities have been identified to invest in tailoring their dwellings with luxurious, unexpected, and even downright wild characteristics to reflect their desires, interests, and hobbies. A private bowling alley, an entire room dedicated to trampolines, an entire room devoted to wine, and a massive skate park are just a few of the things that can be found in Hollywood’s most unique celebrity homes.

The wine cellar of Oprah Winfrey

Oprah Winfrey is known for going above and beyond for her fans, and her home in Telluride, Colorado, is not an exception to this rule. The media star bought the mansion with five bedrooms, six and a half bathrooms, and a wine cellar designed to look like a mining tunnel from the tech entrepreneur Bob Wall in December 2015 for $14 million.

The mansion has a total of seven bathrooms. The wine cellar has a length of 56 feet and can store up to 1,600 bottles of wine; additionally, it has sounds that simulate the ambiance of a cave, such as creaking wood and dripping water. The room’s authenticity is upped even further by the presence of an old ore cart.

Lady Gaga’s bowling alley

Lady Gaga can likely decompress at her $23 million celebrity home in Malibu and possibly even go bowling when she is not busy lighting up a stage with her infectious energy or going glam on the red carpet. The eccentric singer and actor purchased her Mediterranean-style villa in 2014, and among its many enviable amenities is a two-lane bowling alley located on a lower level that also boasts a home theater, a game room, and an 800-bottle wine cellar.

In addition, the upper level of the home features a swimming pool, a hot tub, and a sauna. In addition, there is a bocce ball court, an eight-stall stable, and a swimming pool with salt water all available on the property.

Private airport owned by John Travolta

It shouldn’t come as a surprise that John Travolta has two runways in the backyard of his home in Florida because he has always been a fan of aviation. It shouldn’t come as a surprise at all. “We designed the house for the jets and to have at our access the world at our disposal at any moment, and we succeeded at that,” he said on the Today show in Australia in 2014.

This interview took place in 2014. The actor who played Danny Zuko in Grease has his private pilot’s license and has previously owned multiple planes, including a Qantas Boeing 707 and a Challenger jet. Even the interior design of the house is based on aviation, with a mural of an airport in the dining room and airplane models throughout the house.

The roller blade park and shark lagoon owned by Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne’s former waterfront mansion in Miami, which he sold for $10 million in 2017, is notable for two unusual features that reflect the Grammy-winning rapper’s eclectic taste: a shark lagoon and a skate park. Both of these amenities are located on the property.

Although we cannot confirm whether or not the current owners had maintained these one-of-a-kind amenities when the founder of Young Money Entertainment lived in the home, a lagoon surrounded a glass elevator that led to the main suite. A skatepark was installed on the roof. Skaters would be able to practice their skills while taking in the breathtaking scenery of the ocean.

The trampoline room owned by Bill Gates

Bill Gates may have a personal net worth in the hundreds of billions of dollars, but when it comes to lavish spending, he cites the purchase of his home in Medina, Washington, for the price of $63 million as one of his most significant splurges.

A session was conducted on Reddit by the name Ask Me Anything; in February of 2018, the co-founder of Microsoft stated, “I have a nice house.” My children adore using the trampoline room to burn off some of their boundless amounts of energy, even though it appears to be a bit excessive.

The room has a ceiling that is twenty feet high, providing plenty of room for bouncing, and it is a component of a fitness facility that is two thousand five hundred square feet in size and also features a swimming pool that is sixty feet by seventeen feet and has an underwater music system.

The miniature golf course owned by Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus made her first significant real estate investment in the fall of 2017 when she acquired a rustic 33-acre property in Franklin, Tennessee, a small city located in her home state of Tennessee, for the price of $5.8 million.

Excitingly for the singer of “Wrecking Ball,” the purchase came with several different fun amenities, one of which was a mini-golf course in the property’s backyard. Even though she continues to maintain the property, she currently divides her time between Franklin and a home in Malibu that she purchased in 2016 for $2.5 million.

Jerry Seinfeld owned the baseball diamond.

Jerry Seinfeld has been a lifelong baseball fan, even though he has never participated in the sport in a team setting. As a result, it is appropriate for the comedian to pay homage to the pastime he enjoyed as a child by erecting a baseball diamond in the backyard of the $32 million Hamptons estate he owns.

According to the New York Post, the location of the baseball diamond was formerly occupied by Billy Joel’s boat storage shed when he was the property owner. Additional features of this celebrity home include a garage with space for 22 vehicles and an Elektra Belle Epoque espresso machine that costs $17,000.
